Borscht

Submitted by: DEISTEXTREMIST

Introduction

Please excuse me as this is the first recipe I've posted. The nutritional info is as per the listed ingredients. I couldn't find plain potatoes so I subbed baked potatoes in for the nutritional values. If the nutritional info changes when you bake them make note of that. I wouldn't know. Borscht is so optional as to what you can put into it that the first thing you will be doing is putting other ingredients into it. This soup is filling and high in fiber so it fills you up and sticks with you. Beets are very high in two antioxidants, potassium, and folic acid. Indeed one of the best things about eating borscht is the huge boost in nutrients as can be seen in the nutritional information.

Borscht can be made out of about anything as long as there is beets in it. One thing a lot of people do in Russia is to add all the left over veggies and meat into it as it cooks. You can clean the fridge out. This soups nutrition has been figured with the listed ingredients. Bon Appetito...or....
получать удовольствие (enjoy).

Ingredients

    I put baked potatoes in as the ingredient list didn't have fresh potatoes listed. But you will want to use plain old potatoes.

    6 large beets, peeled and cubed
    3 Med. Potatoes w skins, cubed
    2 Carrots, peeled and diced
    1 Med. Onion, diced
    3 cloves of garlic, minced
    2 oz Lemon Juice (or fresh wedge in bowl)
    4 TB Sour Cream (fat free if you wish)
    Salt & Pepper to taste

    Note: If you have left over stock by all means use that instead of water.

Directions

This serves six.

This is easy. Fill a large pot about 2/3 full of water. While that is heating, peel the veggies ( I leave the skins on the potatoes) and chop them up to your desired bite size. Add it all to the pot and simmer covered for about 45 minutes until tender. Add lemon and sour cream before serving.
